1955 Chevrolet 2 door Post show car with fuel injected 406ci, Air Ride, 4 Linked 9″, air conditioned, custom leather trim and detailed inside, outside and underneath.
SEVEN82MOTORS is proud to offer and market another award winning show car… This is another one of those Tri 5’s that has had no expense spared and just been built to be an amazing car, the detail in this build is exceptional and will suit a very fussy buyer.
Open the bonnet and we’ll start with the engine bay… The 406 small block sits like a diamond ring in its jewellery box with Edelbrock Victor Jr aluminium heads, polished Edelbrock performer alloy intake, Terminator EFI 4 barrel throttle body with a hand held digital controller and filled with Co Forged pistons and a Thumper Comp cam… A custom made and fitted aluminium radiator and A/C condenser sit behind the grill and keep everything shinny. The Hemi air cleaner ads a nice touch to finish out the beautifully presented and detailed engine bay all this sits within.
Drive line and transmission are made up of a Turbo 700R4 4 speed auto with floor mounted Lokar Shifter with a 2500rpm stall converter in a custom made console. Brand new Currie 9inch posi drive differential with 3.90 gears sits up back and the brakes are done with a CPP hydro boost system, chromed booster, stainless and braided lines and Wilwood 6 piston front callipers and 4 piston rears make it stop as good as it all looks. Custom made Billet Intro 18″x8 front wheels and 20″x10 rears sit in the holes. All of the suspension has been replaced and powder coated to match the theme of this build so when you look underneath the bottom is as nice as the top.
The bodywork on the 55 Chevy has been done to an incredible standard. The body has absolutely flawless panel alignment, gaps and is perfectly straight… all covered in House of colour clear over base and buffed completely smooth giving it a mirror finish. The orange and black theme runs throughout the car and sets off the discrete flames on the inside of mouldings perfectly. To add to the bodywork and paint is the utterly beautifully chrome and stainless work. All mouldings, bumpers, trims and badges present in flawless condition.
The interior is by way of a full custom fit out. Black leather and vinyl has been used along with hand laid carpets and perfectly crafted seats, headliner, parcel shelf, door cards and console. A tasteful dash sits before the driver with an 18″ Alpine monitor, Vintage A/C system controls in the custom made lower panel, Danchuck signature series instrument cluster and again perfectly presented.
This is not any ordinary 1955 Chevy 2 door. This is a top level show car with invites to the biggest car shows and displays in the country. Summer nats, Motor Ex and more. As is the case with cars of this nature, they need to be seen to truly be appreciated but has also been built to be used and is QLD mod plated and now shows just over 12,000 miles on the clock and was just driven by the owner for 5 hours to be delivered to us to be sold so make no mistake… she’s all show and all go!
This Chevy is being listed at a fraction of its cost to build or replace and won’t take long to find a new owner so don’t hesitate to call on this one as these sorts of cars never last long with me.
